I was inspired by today's Color Challenge and the Tuesday Teapot Challenge to make this card for my DD. You know it takes a village.. or in this case a lot of inspiration from hostesses here on SCS. A story: When I saw the colors Very Vanilla, Soft Suede, and Raspberry Ripple, I thought one of the colors isn't SU. So, I got my card color chart out and there it was! Now, I always get the new in colors when they come out, so I knew I had to have it! And sure enough, never had used the CS or the Ink pad. How bad is that?? Anyway thank you Julia (artystamper) for making me use it!!! LOL And Marie inspired me to get out my second favorite set Terrific Tulips (2nd to Lovely as a Tree) and used an EF I have only used one other time!! This is also for our All Occasion Card Challenge, ( to do our cards ahead of time) And this is for the 20th! :) Thanks for all the inspiration and thanks for looking!

this is such a pretty card-and you chose a great stamp set to show off the raspberry ripple-glad you found it in your stash-also if you dont have the color we mention you can always use something that's close to it-we just use SU color names as a starting point

Thanks for the sweet words, Sharon. Your beautiful work inspires us, and that just makes the world go 'round! Love how you used the gorgeous Ripple - perfect for your lovely tulips. Thanks for coming to the tea party this week. You will take your cookies - right? Kudos for getting ahead on your cards!
